university poll out this week asked about the forced ultrasound law passed by republicans in the legislature in virginia this year, signed into law by the republican governor in the state, bob mcdonnell. virginia voters opposed that law by 17 points. the anti-abortion crusade that has been undertaken this year by republican-led state government in virginia is not popular in virginia. and now virginia women are prepared to take it out on the presidency, right? they're planning to vote against the republicans' candidate for president in their state by 18 points. and that was the context for a really important move made by virginia's republican attorney general this week, a move that could be important for the presidential race in virginia. this week the attorney general certified a new set of regulations targeted only at abortion clinics in the united states. these rules are not just for oral surgeons or plastic surgery centers, just targeting abortion providers. it's red tape that is specifically designed to make it economically impossible to operate an abortion clinic in virginia. that's wha
to respond to it. you saw this week, he touted his health care law in massachusetts, which was a little awkward for him. but he's kind of showing that he does have an empathetic side. but meanwhile the obama campaign is also coming back. they're releasing new web ad this morning. they're slamming him for bain again for his private equity experience. so i think you're going to see these themes recurring again and again. >> okay. good to see you both as always. thank you. >>> we're going to go now to the weekend weather forecast and get a live look at new york city. and there we have nbc meteorologist -- that's part of new york city. but doesn't look like the usual beautiful view. that's really pretty. look at that. central park kind of nice. >> very nice. >> that's the usual spot right there. we see times square, which is pretty empty this time of day. good morning to you. >> good morning to you, too. nice to see a little greenery first thing on a saturday morning. in new york city. even with the fog, that mist, that drizzle that mist in the air. we're going to see some improvements as w
spying. you have the law of the land in the united states. for the chinese, it is an attractive alternative. when you are on the other side of the trade and you know your competitor or the person you buy something from us under pressure financially, you should hold the card and send a card. so you just don't want to get to a point where the chinese say, look, we will do this, but we want much higher interest rates. so that is when race could spike, really impact the economy, be much costlier for average folks because rates will follow suit and will see a spiraling out of control now. so that is why you just don't want to have some other player having cars like that. in addition, you need economic growth in terms of raising revenue before this country. we are seeing growth contracts. that's okay, but it's just okay. it is not where we should meet in this kind of recovery, at this moment in the recovery based on typical recovery. next year as a result of going over the fiscal cliff and that of course is the expiration of the tax cuts to the spending programs for the most economist

. >> right. >> the law does make that illegal and, therefore, the workers in each case have to make the determination, are they prepared to break the law. >> but just going back to that graph you showed. a huge reason why lockouts are a higher percentage of strikes, there are almost no strikes anymore. >> exactly. >> there was 19 strikes in 2011 and, you know, 12 and 10 before then. we haven't had more than 20 strikes in companies, more than a thousand people for years and years. in the '80s there were hundreds of strikes. unions are getting less powerful. a lot of lockouts is one of the huge issues with every union is pensions. they're portrayed as a time bomb. they are an onerous cost because of health care and other things. and you lock out workers who have a contract that the owner thinks is paying them too much. it's why companies -- it's kind of -- i love covering sports, but when i have to spend so much time on the nfl and no one ever says anything about the american sugar crystal lockout which is going on over a year and people are not making $150,000 which the part-time ref
